-It appears as if Liefer's days on the Sox are numbered. He is demanding a trade, and cant see the Sox wanting to bring him back. If this is true, will Borchard take his roster spot?
- No reason not to invoke Thomas' clause. If he were to come back, it would clear a lot of payroll to resign Konerko and Buehrle., and go find another starter.

Frank's salary will be counted against the luxury tax whether it is deferred or not,so I doubt they will sign much of a starter.

It was a major injury. He lost a lot of time. Show me a bad year by Frank when he was healthy, please.

i read in a recent The Sporting News that said that thomas has been 100% the whole year so he cant use his injury as an excuse for his poor start. that is BS. i like to see anyone else come back from a tricept tear the next year and continue to put up MVP numbers.

Being 100% physically is not the same thing as having your timing back. Players who miss a week take time to get their hitting stroke back. Frank missed a year for all intents and purposes.

I heard that Joe Morgan told Frank that it took him the same amount of time to get his timing back after missing major time as it has taken Frank. I'm absolutely convinced that Frank will be a force again next year, and I'm inviting the Frank bashers to remember that I said this so they can ridicule me if I'm wrong. I wish I'd jotted down everyone who has been bashing Frank so I can do the same.
